    MSNBC needs to send Romney & Ryan a check. ;)

  • Beckstle

    Not really surprised. USA does broadcast-style shows like Burn Notice and White Collar. The shows are well-done entertainment. I wish that concept was more valued by the industry. I enjoy shows like Broadwalk Empire, but honestly it’s more an intellectual enjoyment, whereas broadcast tends to be more emotionally engaging and more fun. I’m glad both genres of shows exist, because having to use my master’s degree to watch television isn’t always what I’m up for as entertainment.

  • Annonimous

    @Beckstle – Broadwalk ? Must be place where broads walk ? I guess YOU really need to use masters degree to understand killing/double crossing/booze smuggling. You can’t even concatenate words in correct order, but dropped your masters degree just fine. Vote for Romney Carmen. He loves dumbasses.

  • Anthony Brown

    Is it possible for you to expand your list to include like the top 50 channels? Just wondering.

  • Gary

    @Anonymous, first of all you can’t even spell right. Why do you have to be a jerk? Beckstle’s post was well put, and from what I can tell had nothing offensive or incorrect.

  • disney rocks

    @Antony Brown- Nielsen only lets them post the top 25

    Go Disney! Go ID!
